California Employment Law
Have California Employment Law Questions? Ask a Lawyer.
No, they are refusing to let me work outside of California. The timesheet, on line, will not let me sign it unless I abide by the over 8 hour daily rule in California. So if I go work in Nevada, for instance, I have to enter time over 8 hours as overtime. They don't like that so I am forced to only work in California by default. As long as I'm in California it's ok.
The previous employer let us determine the rule when we entered time. This company says that it is because of me paying Calif. taxes is they reason they can't take off that restriction.
They can probably only allow me to work in Calif. I guess it's their option. I just want to know what is the law/rule about California residents working (one or two days, maybe up to a week ) in other states. Do you follow the California over time rules or the state that you are working in. Their corporate says that it is California rules no matter what state I work in--because I pay taxes in California. Are they right or wrong!!
Thanks Joseph. You are all right by me!! I think this company has the dud of the class advising them. They seem kind of this way on a lot of things. I didn't know how good I had it until the contract got shifted to this company!! I'll see if I can make any headway with them. If no, my wife is the office manager for a local lawyer--different type but maybe he could knock some sense into them!
